Re: The VINYL Thread!

Ha, missed Oblivion, because the lines are pretty ridiculous to check out. Went to Canterbury and Poobah's out here and got a couple of items from Canterbury's, but Poobahs pissed me off. They filed all of their RSD releases in with the regular stock. Why would they do that? Don't they know that most people don't even know what comes out today as an exclusive? I'll be hitting up Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie in Highland Park shortly.

Here's what I got this morning:

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Picked up the following RSD releases today:

Dio/killswitch
Stooges/Black Keys
Garbage
Deftones
Snapcase
White Stripes

Really bummed that I missed out on Porno For Pyros and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. Those were the two I really wanted. Also wanted the Death Waltz releases but no one in my area ever got them.

The lines were hours long at Amoeba, out in the sun, so I said fuck it, traded in my stuff, and bought a bunch of non-exclusives. I'll do a tally when I get home.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Just got back from Gimme Gimme and they had squat. They also limited to one RSD purchase per person. They had the Jack White liquid filled LP but they wanted $325 for it. Fuck that. I noticed that the RSD stuff they had was marked a few dollars higher than the first spot I went to. They also had the At the Drive In "Relationship" something, but they wanted $40 for it, so I left.

I'm calling it a day on RSD.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I did well at RSD '13. Managed to get the Drive pic disc at Waterloo and found a hidden glow Poltergeist at Encore. Those were the two I was wondering if I'd actually find. Picked up a couple of the Miles Davis releases, The Zombies, Joan Jett, Factory Records 10" sampler, Cypress Hill, White Stripes, The Cure, The Glove. Would have bought the Coltrane, Dazed And Confused and Notorious BIG if I'd seen them.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I think Record Store Day does not match the demand now; some of the releases should have had much higher print numbers as this isn't a totally niche event anymore.

That's because of eBay. So many assholes run out and buy everything with no intention of doing anything other than flipping them. The Stooges/Back Keys seven inch is going for $40 plus on eBay. I paid less than $10 and plan on keeping it.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Wow, I had The Zombies in my sights and was looking right at it before I left one of the record stores.

I'm digging that Halloween LP - didn't know Dead Waltz was participating in the RSD event.

I wanted the White Stripes LP but didn't see it at any of the shops I was at. I didn't get over to Amoeba, so that was a pass.

I do regret not getting the Cypress Hill LP and the name escapes me, but it was their landmark album. I was in 9th grade when that one came out.

While I do agree that it is mostly the Ebay effect, I would also say that 1000 picture discs of the Drive soundtrack and 2000 7" South Park releases are way too few for items that are supposed to be spread all over the US in shops.

By comparison, limited edition soundtracks/scores are usually in the 3000-5000 unit pressing range.

And another lame thing is that unset uniform pricing for items, allowing for gouging; makes it more of a collector's event than a music one.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The Drive is a good number. Its about the size of a typical Tyler Stout poster run. The regular and pinks will be out on May 26. That's the one you want if you are going to listen to the album. Now I do think another 500 poltergeists wouldn't have hurt. That one was tough. But again, I've heard the glow sounds worse than the reg.

I did a grab and run as I had lots of stuff to do today.

- Nick Drake "Nick Drake" - an exact replica of the 71 US release. Contains songs from his first two albums. Even has the bargain bin punch hole scanned throughout the gatefold and sleeve. Came with copy of record store poster from 71.

- Robyn Hitchcock "There Goes the Ice" - vinyl edition of Robyn's download only series with two new songs for RSD. 750 made.

- The Three O'Clock "Live at the Old Waldorf" - random neo-psych band from the late 80s early 90s. On green vinyl. Used to listen to them all the time and saw them open for REM back in the day. Hand numbered/1000.

- The Band "The Last Waltz" - 3 Lp set. Replica of foiled album cover. 5000 numbered.

- Low + Dirty Three "In the Fishtank 7". Gold vinyl.



Was interested in the Phish "Lawn Boy" release and the Captain Beefheart. No dice. The Flaming Lips release was intriguing but ill never have 4 turntables. I could only muster up two complete stereo systems. Really wanted that Lips release last year.

Yes, it's a collectors event. That's why many of the releases are numbered. The scarcity of a title makes it more collectible - the limitedness of an item is a relative number. Why is 1000 too few for an item they WANT to be scarce?

I went to two stores and both had the same prices. There's always going to be stores that exploit it. Bad karma.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I understand the collectable aspect of it, I'm saying that RSD is becoming more of a collectors event and eventually will lose its luster because of that. If you have more people coming, you have to increase the amount of items otherwise you're going to have people lose interest.

1000 for the Drive Soundtrack is too few when you consider that that means 10 copies for 100 stores across the US when I can think of at least 10 RSD stores in the SF Bay Area alone.

Sure I went to go check out the RSD store for records but I usually go to a nearby one on the weekend anyways. Only difference was that I didn't stand in line for hours to be the one of the first 10 people who could secure any title they'd want.

I got the Dazed And Confused soundtrack (on "herbal green marbled" vinyl, hand numbered of 5,000) and Big Star Nothing Can Hurt Me Now (also limited edition RSD colored vinyl). Both are pretty damn sweet.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

If the Drive picture disc is an absolute must have, check your store Monday. They were lost until Thursday night. Not all stores received copies and will receive later.

How about Patty Griffin's "Ohio".. which was limited to 500? I know, not as big of a name, but still. At least I managed to snag my copy (#125)!

The Coheed and Cambria disc is a Coke Bottle clear vinyl. Haven't opened it yet, but the pictures that I've seen look pretty sweet. I know there were other records that were also pressed in coke bottle clear as well.

I also don't think I will be opening the Rob Zombie RSD disc due to it being one of those discs that play from the middle on out. I do not want to master the needle placement on a limited disc just yet.
